      Multiverse and choice theory

      There's a theory of time that I have that the universe is really a multiverse, and that all possible choices and realities exist in a universe somewhere. In this universe I am me, but in another universe another me is watching TV. In another universe another me is having sex. In another one another me just died in a terrible accident. And so on...

      Now, if all choices exist what does this say on morality and good/bad? What does this also say for the future? Since all possible choices exist no matter their probability, what determines the future and choices that we experience? Is this a function of the mind that allows us to transition from one universe to the other giving us the illusion of free will? I believe our minds do have an impact on some sub-quantum level that we are not even aware of. Through the subconscious, we can make gradual changes to our lives and the world around us... if someone absolutely believed, accepted as true, that cows could fly, would they then experience a universe where this is true, assumming the probability for this is > 0? Perhaps the insane are only insane to the rest of us...

      A bad Jet Li movie was based around this same concept and based on the wording of your post I assume that you've seen it. But hey, maybe not.

      Actual quantum theory suggests the following:
      Consider a situation where you are tossing a football around with a buddy. In actuality, when you throw the ball, it does not travel in a nice smooth arc to the other person. Simultaneously it goes 10 inches higher than you see, 10 inches lower than you see, it takes a crazy zig-zag pattern, it makes a trip around the earth, it travels in an infinite number of paths crossing every point in the universe. The path that you observe the football taking is really just the sum of all routes, or the average of all routes.

      I like the idea of a multiverse based on the idea of microcosms and macrocosmic structure. It seems to me that human sentience is either an essential part of the whole system, or else a mesocosmic thing. I find your theory a little too anthropomorphic.

      How is his theory anthropomorphic in ANY way??
